Outbreak of nosocomial sepsis and pneumonia in a newborn intensive care unit by multiresistant extended-spectrum beta-lactamase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae: high impact on mortality.


We describe a case-control study of a small outbreak of nosocomial sepsis and pneumonia with high mortality due to clonal dissemination of a multiresistant Klebsiella pneumoniae in the neonatal intensive care unit of a Mexican institution. Our study helped to change nosocomial infection control policy in this hospital.
